Chad Saaiman shot

Chad Saaiman on the Breakfast Show in February 2011

We learnt with great shock early this morning that musician Chad Saaiman, was shot in an alleged hijacking last night in Johannesburg.

Chad’s brother Lee, confirmed the shooting in an interview with the Breakfast Team this morning. (See Bushradionews)

Our thoughts are with Chad and his family as we wish him a speedy recovery.

Chad assisted Bush Radio with various events and projects.

A Bush-e moment

Faces for Radio: E-TV's Lester Kiewit (left) and Bush Radio's Victor J (right)

Bush Radio 89.5 FM’s Breakfast Team was joined by ETV‘s Lester Kiewit this morning to co-host the morning drive time show with Victor J.

We found out that the television journalist enjoys listening to the Breakfast Show (via Twitter) and we felt it was only right that he had an opportunity to join the craziness in the studio.

Dreadlock brothers: Lester Kiewit looks on while Chad Saaiman explains his hairstyle

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for Victor J, Chad Saaiman joined them in the studio.

They discussed Saaiman’s new CD The Flight but – because the guest presenter and musician share a hairdresser – the conversation turned to their signature dreadlocks! And the speed at which Bush Radio gets up video, audio and pictures.

Since 2008, we have been posting video clips of some of the happenings at Bush Radio on local video and photo sharing site Zoopy. The company has recently changed direction (see Bizcommunity) and due to several requests from listeners we have launched a YouTube channel.

You will still be able to find some of the old videos, special audio clips and we will continue to post new ones.

So whether it is; Jack Parow talking about rock music and big guys, Byron Clarke performing his amazing Cape Town anthem, how we teach children radio and media  , Illuminati Getuies (above) or the funny Buy Nothing Day ads they all here.
